A man who died after being pulled from a frozen lake in south-east London has been identified by police.

Stephen Cavanagh, 60, fell into Danson Park in Bexleyheath on Wednesday afternoon.

Mr Cavanagh, who lived nearby, was rescued by a member of the public, police said, but later died in hospital.

Earlier reports that he had been in the lake trying to rescue a dog were denied by London Ambulance Service.

UK roads, railways and airports were severely hit by snow for a third day on Thursday.
